Evangeline is located at 190 State Street in Portland, Maine’s Arts District and has earned distinction as one of the country’s best small French restaurants. The restaurant is known for its quintessential French dining experience and modern bistro atmosphere. Chef Erik Desjarlais and his team are inspired by the regions of France and local and seasonal ingredients. Meals are prepared using the highest quality ingredients with an abundance of naturally grown items from local Maine farmers, suppliers and producers. The newly conceived wine and cocktail lists will include old world French wines, new world American wines, and refreshing early summer inspired drinks. Since opening in 2008, the restaurant has received an impressive amount of press in national and regional outlets including, GQ, The New York Times, World Traveler, Sherman’s Traveler, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and The Portland Press Herald. In 2009, USA Today named Evangeline one of the 10 greatest places in the country to master the art of French eating, alongside nine masters of French food, including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, Michel Richard and Hubert Keller.
Evangeline opened its doors in April, 2008, much to the delight of New England diners. The cuisine at Evangeline is a direct reflection of the heart and passion of Chef/Proprietor Erik Desjarlais. The restaurant is located in Longfellow Square at the tip of Portland’s historic West End.
